Black Eye Pea Salad TNT

Black Eye Pea Salad

2 cups black eye peas
4 oz. white onion - diced
6 oz. red bell peppers - diced
4 oz. black olives - chopped
1 tbsp oregano
4 oz. parsley
(great with cilantro too)

For the dressing:
6 oz. EVOO
Zest of half a lime
4 oz. white vinegar
1 tsp chopped garlic
1 tbsp sugar
salt and pepper to taste

Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl.
Mix dressing in a separate bowl and pour over salad.
Adjust with salt and pepper to taste.

This is even better the second day.

Imogosh, GB, this sounds yummy. I assume you mean canned black eyed peas, just to clarify. Otherwise, there'd be soaking, cooking, etc.

Thanks for the recipe.

Yes, canned (drained and rinsed). This is one of my favorite recipes to make for a summer time cookout.

I wonder if canned black beans or kidney beans could be substituted. I think I'm the only person in the South who doesn't like black eyed peas.

I am sure they could Licia. I think just about any canned bean could be used. I bet chick peas would be an interesting sub as well. Or use a mix of different types.

GB, I have several cans of pink-eye purple-hull peas, which are another field pea in the same family as black-eye peas. How do you think they would work in this recipe?

I think they would work great constance. This is a very forgiving recipe. It can hold up to all sorts of changes and alterations.

Great! You have solved my dilemma of what to fix to go with our smoked meat on the 4th of July.
